On Appeal from County Civil Court at Law No. 4 Harris County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. 1018590
In The Fourteenth Court of Appeals
On April 1, 2013, appellant filed a brief that is not in compliance with the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure. The brief fails generally to comply with the rules. See Tex. R. App. P. 38.1(a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f), (g), (h), (i), (j) and (k).
Accordingly, we order appellant's brief filed April 1, 2013, stricken. Appellant is ordered to file a brief that complies with the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure on or before April 22, 2013, of the date of this order. See Tex. R. App. P. 38.1(a), (b), (c), (d), (e), (f), (g), (h), (i), (j) and (k).
If appellant files another brief that does not comply with Rule 38, the Court may strike the brief, prohibit appellant from filing another, and proceed as if appellant had failed to file a brief. See Tex. R. App. P. 38.9(a). Pursuant to Texas Rule of Appellate Procedure 38.8(a), where an appellant has failed to file a brief, we may dismiss the appeal for want of prosecution. If appellant fails to timely file a brief in accordance with Rule 38, the appeal will be dismissed for want of prosecution. See Tex. R. App. P. 38.8(a)(1).
Panel consists of Justices Boyce, Jamison and Busby.
